The staff of EQuad News has received three new recognitions of excellence:

* A 2003 Clarion Award from the Association for Women in Communications for best external, nonprofit newsletter, and

* two APEX 2003 Awards recognizing publication excellence for newsletter writing and feature series writing.

This brings the total number of awards received by the EQuad News so far this year to eight.

Contributors to EQuad News are Director of Engineering Communications Ann Haver-Allen, Communications Assistant Sara Peters, copy editor Alicia G. Brzycki, photographer Frank Wojciechowski, and writers Steve Schultz, Peter Page, and David Barry.

Clarion Award

The Clarion Awards trumpet clear, concise communications and are widely recognized as a hallmark achievement. Only one award is presented in each category, and winners are recognized as outstanding communicators.

These awards are judged based on the publication's synopsis of goals and objectives, target audience, editorial strategy, and budget. Judges review three consecutive issues of the publication and consider how well the defined communications plan is executed.

The fall 2002, winter 2002-'03, and spring 2003 issues of EQuad News constitute the winning entry.

The Clarion Awards were presented at the annual conference of the Association for Women in Communications.

The APEX award for excellence in newsletter writing recognizes the fall 2002 issue of EQuad News, which is online at ~seasweb/engineering/eqnews/fall02/index.html. The APEX award for feature series writing recognizes the work of Ms. Peters for her series titled "Introducing young minds to ubiquity of engineering," which appeared in the winter 2002-'03 issue and is online at
